Cape Cod, Boston, and Rhode Island Newborn Lifestyle Sessions
I have many more Family Beach sessions to blog, but this little lady has been sitting on my Newborn list for too long! Her session was back in the beginning of July, when she was just 9 days old. Now that she’s almost two months, I can only imagine how much she’s changed. It always amazes me how different little babies look - even from a Fresh 48 session (in the hospital within the first 48 hours of life!) to a Newborn Lifestyle session at home, just a few weeks later!
I hope Lauren and Brian enjoy looking back at how small their girl was two months ago!
About a year and a half ago, I met two brand new baby boys - and their equally as sweet Mom and Dad at their house for an in-home Newborn Lifestyle session. I remember being so excited when I received an inquiry from their Mom because it was also my first Newborn session with twins! I always love meeting new babies, so I knew two at once would be even better…About a year after that session, I met up with their family again at Mayflower Beach in Yarmouth Ma, for their One Year photos.
New this year, I’ve started offering First Year Bundle packages for parents who plan ahead and know that they want to capture their new little one in all of the stages of their First Year of life! The bundle package includes a Maternity session, a Newborn session, a session at 6 months old, and a session on the baby’s First birthday….and sometimes, when I’m lucky, I have parents book two Newborn sessions - a Fresh 48 session in the hospital, and Newborn Lifestyle photos at home. This is REALLY my favorite thing because I’m a little bit obsessed with seeing how much a baby changes from the day of their birth to about a month old…Little Natalie was just 24 hours old during her first photos, which took place in the hospital.
And then there were two - nothing changed and everything had changed.
I first met this family a year and a half ago during their son’s Newborn photos. Carolyn contacted me and said they were looking for in-home, relaxed photos to capture their new little baby. I ended up loving their photos so much, that you’ll often see them in my marketing. On Saturday, I got to hang out with them again.
Growing up as a child #3 out of 4, I'm not sure I had a nursery! I know my parents kept me safe and I slept somewhere, but I have a feeling my two older sisters may have had a nicer room than I did as a baby. ;) As a Newborn photographer, I'm lucky enough to see amazing nurseries - especially after a first child is born!
If you asked me, I would've said that this session took place just about a month ago. The summer has flown by and has kept me busy with Family photo sessions, but this little guy was one of my favorites before the summer began!
Not only was he a perfect baby model, but his Mom and Dad were the sweetest - and their house is amazing! Their nursery had great details - personalized blankets, little booties and socks, and sweet decorations.
Confession time - I've had these photos open in a window on my computer and ready to go for the last two months! Summer family sessions have kept me really busy, but I have a little lull until Fall photos start, so I'm hoping to get some of my favorite sessions up on the blog!
Mr. Liam was born in April, had his photo session in June, and, now - at almost five months old - will finally have his own blog post ...shared with his family and big sister of course!
To say this little one is loved is an understatement - Not only did Mom and Dad love snuggling her, but her new big brother also couldn't get enough. When he wasn't running over to say hi to his new little sister with a kiss on the head, he really enjoyed playing with his Dad and having fun!
There is something so special about in-home newborn sessions - every house has different light and every baby has a different personality, but the one constant is that every new parent is always excited to show me their little one!
As a newborn photographer, I am well aware that even the best laid plans don't always work out. Babies can be unpredictable and don't always arrive when expected...Snowstorms can get in the way of a scheduled session...or Mom just may not feel up to photos immediately - just about every scenario happened with this little guy, but he is now thriving and healthy!
